Anthropology doctoral student Ebenezer Adeyemi was awarded a T. Anne Cleary International Dissertation Research Fellowship from the UI Graduate College. Ebenezer’s research interests center around medical anthropology, infrastructure, the intersection of urban landscape and public health, African studies, and survival strategies in marginalized urban communities. For his ongoing doctoral research, Ebenezer is exploring strategies that residents of Makoko, a large informal settlement in Lagos State, Nigeria, use to access healthcare to treat malaria, the most prominent health issue in their community.
